GIRAFFE IN THE CITY – ALL PAINTINGS

[[Show as slideshow]]

I THOUGHT ONE DAY THAT THE CITY COULD BE SEEN AS A ZOO FOR HUMANS AND IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO TAKE A WILD ANIMAL AS THE OBSERVER – THAT IS HOW THE IDEA STARTED. I WAS LOOKING FOR A SPECIES THAT WOULD BE UNADAPTED TO LIVING IN THIS ZOO BUT ALSO AN ANIMAL THAT PEOPLE CAN NOT LOOK DOWN AT.

I DECIDED UPON THE GIRAFFE. THE LONG NECK OF THE GIRAFFE HIGHLIGHTS THE VIEWING PROCESS; THEY HAVE A GENTLE AND CURIOUS WAY OF WATCHING. THE GIRAFFE HAS ALSO SOME FORMAL/METAPHORICAL SIMILARITIES WITH THE CITY REMINDING ME OF SKYSCRAPERS, EXOTIC TOP MODELS AND A DESIRE OF GETTING HIGHER.

THE STORY CONTINUES AS AN EXPLORATION OF PATTERNS, LINE AND COLORSURFACE. THE GRAPHICAL AND GEOMETRICAL LANGUAGE OPPOSES TO THE MOVEMENT OF THE BRUSH AND ABSTRACT EXPRESIONISM. IT’S A STORY RELATING WILD NATURE WITH THE WILD CITY ORGANISM.

wow-this-is-a-city“ WOW THIS IS A CITY ! “

SIZE 180 X 100 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

CURIOUSLY ON THIS PAINTING THE CITY LOOKS MORE ORGANIC THAN THE GIRAFFES. THE REASON IS THAT THEY ARE WATCHING WHILST THE CITY IS RUNNING.

i-have-seen-you-so-many-times“ I’VE SEEN YOU SO MANY TIMES – BUSY “

SIZE 84 X 162 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

THE OTHER WAY OF OBSERVING THE CITY WOULD BE TO TRY TO FOLLOW IT’S MOTION. BLUR.

district-of-night-desires“ DISTRICT OF NIGHT DESIRES”

SIZE 100 X 180 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

BEHIND THE BUILDINGS AREDESIRES. INITIALLY PERCEIVED AS BLUE AND COOL BECOME RED AND VIBRANT INTO THE NIGHT.RED LIGHT DISTRICT – WANCHAI. PERHAPS WANCHAI IS ALSO ONE OF THE MOST ANIMAL LIKE DISTRICTS.

today-i-exploded“ HIDDEN EMOTIONS “

SIZE 90 X 130 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

EMOTIONS IN THE CITY AREHIDDEN.THE SURFACE IS CLEAN WHILST FROM BEHIND COME THE EMOTIONS, COLORS AND DIFFERENT TINTS OF THE SAME FEELINGS.

reflection-in-bank-of-china“ REFLECTION IN/ON BANK

OF CHINA “

SIZE 84 X 162 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

SUPPOSEDLY THE BANK OF CHINA REFLECTS THE NATURE OF THE BAMBOO IN A GEOMETRICAL LANGUAGE. BUT IRONICALLY THE FINAL OUTPUT INSTEAD OF REFLECTING THE POWER OF NATURE REFLECTS FINANCIAL POWER.

runing-in-the-circle“ RUNING IN THE CIRCLE “

SIZE 122 X 138 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

A PART OF THE VIDEOTHE CIRCLE IS A MAGICAL FORM EXPRESSING SOMETHING ENDLESS OR A REPETITION. WE MIGHT COMBINE BOTH ASPECTS AND SAY AN ENDLESS REPETITION.WHEN THE REPETITION IN THE NATURE FOLLOWS THE SUN, SEASONS ,(…) THE REPETITION IN THE CITY FOLLOWS HUMAN / ELECTRONIC NATURE.

vertical-savanna“ VERTICAL SAVANNA “

SIZE 84 X 162 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

DISPLAY VERTICAL / HORIZONTAL

IN TERMS OF PATTERN THE CITY MIGHT BE PAINTED IN THE SAME WAY AS THE NATURAL LANDSCAPE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE HORIZONTAL IS BECOMING..PLEASE TURN YOUR HEAD 90 DEGREES TO SEE THE SAVANNA.

———————————————————————————————————————-

from-the-mountains-to-the-city“ FROM THE MOUNTAINS

TO THE CITY “

SIZE 168 X 162 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

DISPLAY VERTICAL / HORIZONTAL

THE PATH FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE CITY IS NOT A SMOOTH TRANSITION. THAT’S TWO WORLDS. HORIZONTAL IS REPLACED BY THE VERTICAL. SMOOTHNESS AND DELICACY BY ROUGHNESS AND HIGH CONTRAST.

loook“ FUSION “

SIZE 72 X 90 CM

MEDIA SYNTHETIC PAINT, STENCIL

CITIES ARE HAVING A GREAT POTENTIAL OF ABSORPTION. WHOEVER COMES IN, REMAINS.
